, as a social studies teacher, could teach physics. i would fail miserably in my classroom if i was teaching physics. that's part of the reason why you have a content gate before you start teaching. but it's also ridiculous to think that you can actually manage a classroom of 30 kids, differentiate instruction if you don't have some baseline clinical practice. and that's what professionals actually know. so we're saying, let's control our own profession, just like lawyers and doctors. let's have high standards that are aligned with this new common core so we're aiming to help kids critically think, work together, apply knowledge. and let have this kind of universal assessment. teachers take a lot of tests already to become teachers. have a universal assessment so that teachers feel confident and competent on the first day of teaching. >> randi weingarten is the pre of the american federation of teachers. thanks for joining us. >> great to be with you. >>> a list of what you should buy, coming up next.

what the rules are for 2012. we are going to have one of the most miserable filing seasons that anybody can remember the key is the alternative minimum tax. it was for 123 people are readily. last year, 4 million people page -- paid the amt. if congress does not do something, there will be 2 million people paying the amt. the average tax bill is $3,500. that is the problem that the men and women in congress have to solve. host: we have three weeks left in the here and there is talk about the fiscal class and talk about sequestration. is it conceivable that they will decide to let the amt go by the wayside and we will always -- all be paying this $3,500 -- we will all be paying this $3,500? guest: we do not think so. people have to remember. tax rates are going to go up for the top two% of the people. that is the worst case scenario for -- tax rates will go up 2% -- will go up for the top 2% of people. 2/3 of the people do not take deductions. they are not involved in this discussion. one other thing that disappeared at the end of last year is the sales-tax deduction. we all get to de

a person who commits suicide and then homicide-suicide, not only are they so miserable this they are ready to die, but they feel that they need to get some sense of vengeance by killing other people and taking them with them. now, i know you want to predict and look around, parents want to see in their kids. you can't do that. it's really literally impossible to identify mass murderers in advance. what we can tell and parents can tell when their kids need assistance and need help and cowbell couns counseling, but can't predict they are going to be mass murderers. >> for more now and the new details involving the massacre, let's go straight to nbc's jay gray who is standing by in newtown. jay, what more can you tell us? >> reporter: well, craig, i think what you've said is very true, and what everybody has been talking about here, but i think it's important to point out there's been so much misinformation involved with this case that we're finally beginning to learn some of the very basic specifics here. we know that the accused gunman, adam lanza, did carry not only a semiautomatic weapon
growth real quick. a couple numbers. even with the miserable growth we've experienced from 2009 to 2012, you know how much revenue has increased to the federal government per year? $344 billion. if we just return to a normal economy, where we have revenue generation, which is average, at 18.5%, that would add another $434 billion per year. add those up that's more than $750 billion and president obama's punish success scheme would raise somewhere between 74 and 35 it's 10% -- here's the problem -- >> bring the soldiers back from korea. what are they doing there? how about japan? how do we cut the defense budget now? >> jim, i'm not disagreeing with you. >> what's the -- >> first audit of the defense firms we don't even know where the money is being spent. i'm not disagreeing with you on defense. you want to really attack what's going to be an explosion in costs, it's brom ma care. obama care is so vastly or grocery underestimated in terms of costs. i mean currently, the current budget window is $1.7 billion. when true spending kicks in $2.5 and that assumes only 1 million employees lose
make you and i miserable for a day or two, but could be deadly for patients with suppressed immune systems. regular access to ivig therapy means a better quality of life, less disability, potentially the difference between life and death. unfortunately today current law excludes from medicare coverage the items and the services necessary to administer this ivig therapy in the home. where doctors tell us patients with compromised immune systems can benefit the most. the medicare ivig act to date requires the centers for medicare and medicaid services to do a couple of things. establishes a three-year demonstration project to cover these items and services necessary to do this therapy in the home, evaluates the impacts of the demonstration project on access for these medicare beneficiaries, and realizes the appropriateness of implementing a new methodology for ivig in all care settings under medicare part b and updates the previous report on this by the assistant secretary of planning and evaluation. it's my intent that the required study consider the impact of lag time with respect
all was miserable. i do not make a million dollars. they could at least let us keep our tax break, but now they have cut us out of that. they have taken 95% out of the equation. that really picked me off. i am really dissatisfied with the gop party right now. >> don in westport massachusetts -- westport, mass.. independent caller. >> john. we have been watching all this go on. it is benghazi, the president tried to push these things through. i'm sorry. i was a democrat but i changed but i can no longer be a democrat because i cannot understand what they're trying to do. we have $16 trillion in deficits. we cannot fix anything and we are not going to do any spending cuts. so we are going to add more to the deficit but all you are going to do is tax millionaires. that is fine, but those are the people that create the jobs for the middle class. i depend on these people that have the money to pay me. >> what do you do for a living? caller: i am a construction worker. >> democrat caller from louisiana. nina. i just wanted to say, if you listen to the callers, of how disgusted we are wi
because it's what they did instead of counting and miserably in the back to the drawing board. but my preference would have been to have somebody from the outside sitting down and doing it in a reasonable fashion, so that's best for the country, what's best for the district, what's best for the state. >> tying into all of this of the role of parties. more americans over the course of your tenure identify themselves as political. what has that done to the party during the past couple decades? >> not as much as super committees. in the citizens united case that's probably been more on maybe some of the other things with less partisanship and less willingness to come together. i happen to agree on the political parties but in nebraska the nebraska legislature is a officially nonpartisan. some people just run for the seat. they don't run as republicans or democrats. generally republicans are, democrats are, but it's not uncommon for democrats to be chairmen of committees even if there's a majority of republicans unofficially. so i come from an environment there was spirit and was spun by
romney tried to make the case that occurred as is making. it has failed miserably. it has failed in history. if it fails from campaign economics. the bush tax cuts disproportionately benefit high- income people. if we get rid of those we will save a lot of money and there is minimal risk to the short term income. high income, whether you are with a wall street bond trader or a ceo of a corporation, they tend to be less vulnerable to the ups and downs of their income and middle class people prepare -- people. linney to support those people. that will lock in a savings again. -- we need to support those people. that will lock in savings again. host: next caller. get -- and can't we do away with the federal reserve? if they don't have a arwin power, they cannot have debt. -- if they do not have borrowing power, they do not have debt. that we cannot borrow money from china. let's do away with it. everybody buckle down for a decade and let's get this thing came down. host: let's go to our next caller in massachusetts. the democrats line. caller: looking at the we go back -- at the fis

"snowstorm in august" sunday night on c-span2's booktv.
